"Linux was a distant third with 1.17 percent. "

Finally, I'm a 1%-er at something!

leviosaurus:Meanwhile, Dell is predicting a major crash in the PC market. This was a bad moment for Microsoft to lay an egg.

Lets take a look at their announcement . . . Uncertain sales of Win 8, a slowdown of enterprise adoption of Win 7, and people moving away from conventional laptops and desktops to tablets and smartphones.

Wow, with that sort of announcement, you'd think that Microsoft would focus attention to developing an operating system that'll work on both touch screen tablets and phones, along with conventional machines, to help people transition. If they were smart, they'd make their interfaces similar, and allow people to run the same software they're used to with conventional PC's, but with a more touch centric approach. A more "modern" UI, if you will.

I too hate what Microsoft has done. Windows 8 is an atrocity and they should never have removed the Desktop app or the Start Menu app. It renders the whole operating system USELESS because Windows 8 removes all access to the files on your computer. I have had Windows 8 for three months now and I turn on my compter in the morning, watch tiles flip all day, then the battery runs out and it shuts off. I had to type this post from my iPhone.

I've just ordered a new operating system built by real people, for real people. It's called Wondows 8 and it's a real time saver. When first installed, your Desktop loads full of shortcuts, half of which no longer link to a program. When you've finished surveying your Desktop in all it's corner-arrowed glory, click the Start button. You know you want to. Yes, Wondows 8 comes with a complete 6-column start menu prefilled with New Folder (2) through New Folder (84). And they're just the way you like them...empty. Or are they? Did I mention that Wondows 8 also comes with fun minigames? The Start Menu game lets you try to find that pesky New Folder (1). Where is it? Is it in New Folder (23)? Maybe New Folder (47)? Only you will know.

Wondows 8. It knows how you computer.

So - Windows 8 - the horrible red-headed step-child of an OS everyone hates has managed to get a bigger install base than the sum of all Linux based desktops?

Oh well.  I'm sure *next year* is going to be the year of the Linux Desktop.  No seriously, I can feel it.
